TUS Airways announced a record number of passengers in 2022 with an increase of over 1,100% across the entire TUS Airways’ network compared to 2021.
A press release issued on Wednesday says that during 2022, the airline successfully operated over 600% more flights than the previous year and grew its fleet by 150% with the addition of more Airbus A320 aircraft.
Ahmed Aly, CEO of TUS Airways said that despite the challenges, TUS Airways has remained committed and steadfast in growing and supporting the Cypriot and East Mediterranean air travel sectors by enhancing regional connectivity and playing a notable pillar in opening new routes and markets.
He said that TUS Airways recently made a significant investment in tangible assets of approx. US $20 million, becoming the largest Cypriot airline by fleet size, number of destinations and passenger numbers, just months after relaunching in late 2021.
"This was, by no means, an easy feat and was only possible through the support of our shareholders, working closely with our partners in hospitality, the Cypriot Ministries of Transportation and Tourism and of course the dedication of the fantastic team at our airline," he said.
The press release also says that the airline acted swiftly to support the industry by operating a diverse yet targeted network of routes (scheduled and charter) with notable successes and achievements such as flights from Paris to both Larnaka and Pafos, up to 6 daily services between Larnaka and Pafos and Tel Aviv, diversifying into new (non-traditional) source markets by operating scheduled and charter services to Spain, Italy, Slovakia, and Austria and record recruitment drives, infrastructural developments, cadet programs and working on multiple joint projects with Cypriot aviation stakeholders.
The press release also reads that 2023 will mark yet another exciting year for the airline reinforcing and expanding its network from Cyprus and the East Mediterranean with more flights to more destinations, continuing to play a pivotal role in the recovery of air travel and tourism to the island.
Over the coming weeks, the company said it will be announcing more exciting destinations for summer 2023 serving a record number of destinations.
